Sayulita

We recently returned from a trip to Mexico where we had the joy of watching two of our good friends get married. Neither Cat or myself had ever been before, so it was a nice excuse to renew my soon to be expired passport and pack for the beach. 

We met up with Michael and Verne at the airport and headed about a hour away to where we would be staying in Sayulita. Usually Cat is the queen at coordinating these things, but Michael (who happens to work for air bnb) took the bull by the horns and had everything organized for us, including the driver who picked us up and took us to the grocery store before taking us to our house. It was really nice not to worry about any of the details, as he had it all figured out. Thanks Michael.

Playa de Muertos. The first day Cat and I came here and it stayed this empty. We came back the following day and it was crazy packed! We also tried boogie boarding and I may or may not have decided never to do that again without a proper tight fitting shirt.

 we saw so many lesbian couples here and clearly I got excited and had to take a picture of this cute local couple being in love. It's 2016, are we equal and accepted yet?

We saw this fire breather every night we went to town. The milk jug next to him is filled with gasoline. His chest was dripping with sweat and he was walking as if he had been drinking gasoline all day. I worried for his health and also noticed that most people didn't enjoy having bits of gasoline spray on them as he blew fire in the street.

It was about 900 degrees this day, but these two look cool as cucumbers.

I learned on this trip that I should have purchased a romper years ago. So comfortable!

All the guests got complimentary hats to wear or fan yourself with, since the wedding was outdoors and it was still pretty hot at 5pm. Also, Michael and Verne have the best shirts.

Millie and Jared. Such a beautiful couple and wedding. Thank you for letting us be a part of your day.

We have a ton more photos and video that are sitting on our desktop waiting to be edited. I may have to do a part II from this trip just to show you how incredibly beautiful this wedding was. We had a great time, got some mosquito bites, and ate a lot of tacos. Sayulita, you're beautiful!

Vlog month 1

I'm new to making vlogs. I know I'll get better at this and find out what I like and don't like about these first few that I'm making. it's really easy to pull out my iphone and tape away, and so that's what i've been doing! I'm making all of these on my phone, and editing them with imovie on my phone (I'm too lazy to import everything into my laptop at the moment). So it leaves me a little limited with what I can do in terms of editing. I'm currently working on my 3rd vlog which will have a lot of cameos from our friends.  so I figured I better post this second one!!! This was from our first month living in Sacramento. 

Found In Sacramento

One thing I LOVE about living in a new city is exploring. Finding new places to have coffee, buy plants (which I am trying really hard not to kill), and watch the sun set. It's a lot of fun. Cat and I started an Instagram account to document all the places we are discovering in our new city. You should follow us !!!

Here are some pictures from this past month

we haven't been making the best food decisions lately but that's ok. You might notice a lot of sweets in these photos :) That's ok. It's temporary. We are exploring with our tastebuds!

When we were unpacking we realized that we had never framed any photos from our wedding day. What?! This is so sweet to see in our hallway now.

Our new climbing gym! These walls are very different from our gym in L.A. One thing that we are not quite used to yet is the belaying system because the ropes have some more give. These walls in particular will have you swinging out like Tarzan if you miss a hold. In other words, I'm climbing with a bit more fear because I am not used to swinging yet. Another climbing fear to conquer.

We moved the office couch temporarily into the living room for some extra seating. Basically, this is Lola's couch. She hangs on it all day. She loves to lay on the top cushion and let it mold around her little robust body while she gets some sunshine.

It rained for a solid week which left us craving a lot of soup. We found this amazing hot pot place called Boiling Avenue and LOVED it. Except, there was something in my soup called a fish meatball. I like to try new things but I must say I will never eat a fish meatball again. I bit into the dumpling thinking it would be a nice cooked flaky fish...what I got was orange fish eggs. Gag! Never again. But seriously, the rest of my soup was just out of this world tasty.

Midtown farmers market in between rain storms. It was really cold so we didn't stay too long but are excited to go back and load up on produce and check out the vendors. We did buy some lavender and homemade pesto.

I'm dubbing Sacramento the city of Waffles. Everywhere you go you can get a delicious waffle. Coffee shops, farmers markets, WE have had a lot of waffles.

The rain has slowed down this week which is exciting because I can't wait to crave cold foods instead of warming foods! I did however get a nice new pair of rain boots for my birthday from Cat, so that has made the rain a lot more fun!!!

I'm loving our new home so much. I was really afraid and also pretty sad to leave L.A., but I am so over the moon happy with our decision to move to again.
